I can’t help but notice that none of these actresses have black hair.
Yeah seriously. Hailee’s hair is the closest to black, obviously not in the included picture in the article where her hair is dyed but in some pictures her hair looks really dark: http://fashiongonerogue.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/FASHION-March-Feature-Hailee-Steinfeld-1.jpg
Also, unsurprisingly given the white-only casting call, most of the people who had a chance to possibly be Katniss were white. All are light-skinned.

The artist’s comments on their drawing are… really weird, but the actual picture is nice.
You’re welcome! And we’re so happy you’re enjoying it.
I just would like to educate the hipster idiots on this website who think “olive toned” skin means someone of darker skin color. Olive toned skin means your skin has a yellow-green hue. It’s a common skin tone for those of Asian, Northern African, Southern European, and Middle Eastern heritage.
My paternal grandmother is 100% Italian and has olive toned skin (because Italy is in southern Europe for you idiots). She is considered Caucasian. She is white. My father and my sister also have olive toned skin. They can tan pretty easily in the sun but they’re both still considered Caucasian. Yes, people with olive toned skin can be darker skinned but that doesn’t mean that a character who is mentioned to be olive skinned means they are dark.
So next time you write a post about how an olive toned character in a book, or movie, or tv show has been white washed, you should just shut the hell up. Clearly you’re retarded and just want to bitch and moan.
“Even though olive toned could mean that the character is a person of color, pointing out how ‘olive skin’ is almost always interpreted as white and how it could be a case of whitewashing is supposedly bitching and moaning and warrants albeist slurs.”
Olives come in several shades (in addition to green, which is not a skin color.)
As someone who matches foundation for people all day long, let me say this: most people with olive-toned skin are not white. Like maybe 10% of people with an olive tone to their skin are white. And I work in a pretty white area, so…

Commmmme onnnnnn, Hunger Games. Look. I have tried to be patient. I know I got some Claflin girls up on my dash, y’all must have your reasons. But are you kidding me with this right now, Hunger Games. Are you? Because I know you are not suggesting with a straight face that everybody in the known world of Panem is like, “yes, I will pay a hundred thousand apocadollars for a piratical slide down this gefilte fish dick.” I KNOW YOU ARE NOT TRYING TO BRING THAT WEAK SHIT TO ME, WHEN WE COULDA HAD
ALL OF THIS.
Nope. No. Look, I can be all about the post-nuclear-apocalypse world where children fight to death by order of the dictatorial central government but it is TAKING SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF A LITTLE TOO FAR to argue that whatever is goin on up there was preferable casting to THIS.
WHAT EVEN IS A “CLAFLIN”
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING
I’M VERY UPSET
UGH, GO TO YOUR ROOM, HUNGER GAMES. GO TO YOUR ROOM AND THINK ABOUT HOW YOU GOOFED.
THINK LONG AND HARD, YA DUMB GODDAMNED ANIMALS.
Lawd, I’m so here for Jesse Williams.
